As part of the Alamo 100, this screening will feature free collectible BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA pins while supplies last.

An all-American trucker gets dragged into a centuries-old mystical battle with a 2,000 year-old sorcerer over an abducted Asian girl with green eyes under the streets of Chinatown.

John Carpenter is one of the greatest things to happen to cinema, and Kurt Russell is THE one true God. If anyone could ever challenge the most incredible hero of all time then it has to be the baddest, ancient Chinese-iest, completely insane David Lo-Pan. Highflying, ass-kicking good times await in this face-melting blast of pure awesomeness where you are treated to not only the laser-mouthed mega bad guy Lo-Pan but also his three unstoppable violent storm hencemen who posess the power of lightning, rain, and thunder.

Big Trouble in Little China is the urban, subterranean, blue-collar version of Indiana Jones with half the smarts, twice the luck, and one million percent more charm. It's witty, it's clever, it's start-to-end action-packed, but, most of all, it is probably the most fun any human can ever hope to achieve through cinema. (Greg MacLennan)
